Greenville North Carolina


THE passing visitor through the quiet streets of Bath would hardly believe, without stopping to delve into the romantic past of the village, that once the affairs of State were directed from one of the now dilapidated wood and brick buildings that has withstood the onslaught of time through the centuries.

One needs must talk to the quaint villagers, hear their story of Teachy, the Pirate, and of his connivance with Governor Eden for protection of his booty, listen with widened eyes to the thrilling mental picture of secret tunnels and buried treasure before discarding the rumors as having no foundation in actual facts.

The relics of former centuries are still to be seen there; Saint Thomas church built m 1734, two hundred years ago, is built of brick brought over as ballast in the ships from the Mother Country and gives mute evidence of antiquity so easily linked with the weird stories of piracy and corruption in colonial government.

That we may turn back the pages of time and review in our mind's eye the probable scenes of two centuries ago on the coast of North Carolina, the decorations of this book portray the Pirate Teachy and his crew.



In gratitude for his kindly guidance through many difficulties, and in respect for his thorough in- struction in history, this


is dedicated to

ROBERT H. WRIGHT May 21, 1870- April 25, 1934

Grief such as ours when one beloved has left us lonely has no language save silence and tears. It's "the old, old fashion, the fashion that came in with our first garments and last un- changed till our race has run its course and the wide firma- ment shall be rolled up like a scroll - the old, old fashion, death."

Across the dark cloud of the inscrutable mystery of death shines the rainbow promise of immortality and we can believe and hope that eternal form shall still divide eternal soul from all beside and we shall know him when we meet.

He wrought mightily for God and men while here When the final record shall be unrolled, we know that his name will be written high by the Angel that writes with a pen of gold among the names of those that loved their fellow-man. "He is not dead, he doth not sleep. He hath awakened from the dream of life." Dr. J. Y. Jovner.

Motto: "Rowing, not drifting"


O strive for all the highes, best, and truest;

To seek for every good that may be gained;

To find a wealth of hidden truth and wisdom;

And not to yield a point we have attained;

To work for joy of working, not as duty;

To hold securely to a fair idea;

To have a lofty goal, and then to reach it,

To keep our lives aglow with faith and zeal--

This is our aim, and always we shall follow

The moving star that travels toward success,

The star that calls to honor and achievement,

To worthy life, and will accept no less.

IN the fall of nineteen hundred and thirty there gathered together at East Carolina Teachers College a hundred and thirty-five young girls. They went aboard the blue and silver ship of '34 and headed toward the ocean of graduation beyond the streams of Ignorance, far across the lakes of Obstacles, and the great river of Misfortune. The passengers knew that others had gone before and had received the degree of gold. The life of eleven years in public schools had prepared them for such a voyage.

So large a crew called for leaders. Soon after they left shore the company chose Ruth Parker, Elizabeth Denny, Eleanor Jones, and Catheryn Holland to guide their ship, and selected Miss Holtzclaw and Mr. Cummings as advisers, and Ellen Moore Fort as their mascot. The first part of the group's voyage was an eventful one. First came Registration day. Everyone passed through easily with the kindness and helpfulness given them by the Student Officers. Soon after our voyage began, we drew up to shore for the Junior-Freshman party, which was a picnic at the Country Club. This was followed by initiation into societies. What fun we all had! Soon came Thanksgiving Day, which was the day of basketball con- tests. Can you believe it ! We, the youngest of the contestants, won the championship. After the basketball contests, we left shore and sailed on and on for many months. These months were spent in work and play. In May we brought our ship to shore once more. It was time for us to honor our sister class, the Juniors. We entertained them royally. It was a May-Day party with a May Pole dance and May Poles on the cakes. We had such a lovely time! In just a few weeks our crew disbanded; for it was time for vacation.

The fall of '31 soon came, and the members of our crew gathered at the ship. Our pilots were Stella Hlevins, Margaret Smith, Mary Lynn Pipkin and Mary Elizabeth Crawford. The second part of our voyage was somewhat uneventful compared to our first. Before wi left shore we saw that the Freshman were located and had been initiated into a society. Our crew did not see land again until we returned to pay our respects to the Seniors. We entertained them at a barbecue supper at the lake. Soon our members said farewell to each other. It was time for a leave of absence.

Next, came the year to which we all looked forward to - our Junior year. My, but weren't we becoming important ! We were proud to say that we were members of the crew of the ship of '34. We chose for our captains Clara Vann Freeman, Margaret Smith, Hilda Thompson, and Etblyn Sanders. This part of our voyage was composed mostly of entertainment. There were three big events. First, there was the Junior-Freshman Halloween party. Next came the Freshman-Junior party, which was a lovely bridge dance. Then came the long-looked-for Junior-Senior Banquet and Dance. We decided to ask the Seniors to come aboard our ship for this event. We had our banquet in our dining hall. After the banquet we went on deck for our dance. Jelly Leftwich and his orchestra sat on the upper deck and provided the rhythm for our dancing. All of it was wonderful, and just as successful as we had hoped for. It was not long before we turned our ship toward port. Vacation time was here again.

The fall of '33 soon came. At last, the ambitions of years! The crew entered upon the last lap of the voyage. Our ship was guided by Ruth Parker, Aleen Hunt, Elizabeth Royall, and Mary Lynn Pipkin. The fall was uneventful; perhaps all the members were too busy with practice teaching to engage in merriment. The winter months brought forth the Sophomore-Senior theater party, and the Senior class play, "The Family Upstairs." In the spring our band was entertained by the Juniors.

And now, oh joy, goal is at hand! The streams, the lakes, the rivers are all behind, and we, the "Class of '34" enter the Ocean of Life.

Elizabeth Denny, Historian.



WE, the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-four, on the eve of graduation, do hereby make and declare our last will and testament. To the incoming freshman class we leave first, our class colors, blue and silver. with the hope that they will love them as we do. Second, we leave the freshmen a broad and deep outlook on life and the patience to develop this quality all through their years of college life.

Aspiration and courage we leave to the Sophomores. Aspiration to the very highest of ideals and the courage to attain these heights.

Juniors, we leave you all our intellectual attainments through these four years, our personality, originality, dignity, and poise, for you will sorely need all these and many more qualities.

We leave to our faculty our love and affection, and gratitude for their willing and untiring efforts to help us in anything we attempted to do, either as a class or an individual. To them also, we leave peace of mind, at least until another Senior class returns.

And to you, Alma Mater, goes our loyalty.

Esther Pridgen. Loula May Barker.

Elizabeth Denny. Rebecca Curtis.


IT was lovely in the forest, and the Big, Bad Wolf wandered dejectedly about in search of amusement. Suddenly his ear caught a strange, whirring sound overhead, and he saw a silver bird flying.

"Ah-ha," chuckled the wolf to himself, "What have we here?" And away he ran, following with his eyes the shining bird. All at once he stopped, for the bird was falling crazily, and three feathers were floating toward the ground. But when the feathers came nearer, his eyes nearly popped out of his head. They were pigs - the fattest, pinkest pigs in the world, with billowing parachutes attached. Growling hungrily, the wolf rushed toward them, but they squealed their way to a massive glass structure, and slammed the great door in the wolf's disappointed face. Through the transparent walls he saw the three pigs stand with clasped hands while they s;iim with gusto. "Who's afraid of the Big. Bad Wolf?" Then, as they turned, he noticed that each one was labelled, and their names were Rheta Hyatt, Elizabeth Fulcher, and Mildred Horton.

The Big, Bad Wolf began a slow journey around the huge house and saw that it was a world to itself, where many labelled pigs hurried about. This first room was a laboratory and spectacled Dr. Frank Tyson was experimenting with cat whiskers. A neat little assistant. Pauline Floyd, came in and tore a leaf off the calendar, and there was the date, March 16, 1942.

In the next section a paint-smeared artist labelled Will Higdon was putting the final touches to a portrait of the current sensation, Lucile Pait. Three pink wheels were whirling around the studio, and when they stopped there wire the three calisthenic experts: Eleanor Jones, Georgie Bell, and Elizabeth Leake. Adjoining the studio was a book-store, where the serious owner, Esther Pridgen, was deep in conversation with a long-haired poet. Troy Burnette, and a wild-eyed novelist, Julia Stilley.

It was not far to a dimly lighted chapel and the wolf strolled by just as Dr. George Wilkerson announced the first hymn. In the choir he could see Juanita Young and Nell Lee, and at the organ sat the renowned figure of Rebecca Curtis.

When be saw Pauline Barber hurrying toward the aviation field, he followed her, and arrived in time to see two photographers. Estelle Harris and Jessie Finch, rapidly taking shots at Elsie Parker, Marietta Hoyle. and Blanche Moscley. who had just returned from a flight to Timbuctoo. By the side of a strange, fish-like structure stood the proud inventors, Mildred B. Williams and Avis Tew. Mary Lynn Pipkin was crying into an oil cup because she had wrecked her plane and injured her indignant passengers, Agnes Strickland and Alice Wharton.

The Wolf wandered by the hospital where Hilda Thompson was the head nurse. In one room he saw Freda Parks, whose human grasshopper stunt had failed. Attending her were two anxious nurses, Josephine Robertson and Faye Tadlock. In the laboratory Eloise Garrette and Pauline Robertson were making new food capsules. They had tried some of them on Lucile Rose and Laura Thornton, who soon required the services of Ethlyn Sanders and Mildred Howard, reducing specialists.

The library was the next spot of interest, and there Pearl McHan was handing

out heavy volumes to Aileen Hunt who was writing Mud Puddles, Theoretically Treated, illustrated by Beulah House. Mary G. Parker, Louise Simmons, and Jean Simpson were working on a book of suggestions to the unsightly, including pictures of Leola Pleasant and Aleen Tedder, modelling their new eyebrows for the sophisticated. On the shelves he could see a book called Reveries of a Bachelor, by Clyde Brown, another called Missionary Musings by Nellie Grissom, and a third, Helpful Hints to the Hurried Housewife by Frances Harvey. At a table he saw Margaret C'uthrell. almost smothered in books, writing a thesis on the history of polliwogs.

The wolf next passed a crowded court room where Judge Bob Eason was having some difficulty in keeping peace between attorneys Ruth Parker and Helen Burnette. The case concerned a row which occurred in Elcy Miller's tea room when Perry Davis found a button in her sandwich.

In the adjoining room Hilda Barnhill was pouring tea for her mother-in-law. Alva VanNortwick had just announced news flashes by Temperance Garris. The wolf learned that Edwin Burch had created a ravishing coiffure, which had made a hit with those scintillating ladies of Broadway, Glennie Draper and Mattie Lou Cotten. Stella Blevins had developed a new variety of the snapdragon. The best book of the week was Styles for Sylphs by Lola Brooks and Rachel Lewis. Helen Harkey and Clara Vann Freeman were agitating their new calendar with marked success. Mildred Dixon was still studying pyramids, and Mabel Dickens was advocating a return to the gig. After the news flashes Lois Hayes and Ruth Williams did the'ir feature, "Nice and Nutty." Mary Belle Wilson and Florence Denning gave some musical relief, followed by a talk on budgets by Elizabeth Royall. When Alva announced a Jew's harp selection by Emma Lee Davis the wolf moved on to the nursery. There Margaret Matthews was playing with a room full of big-eyed babies. Edna Farrow brought them some orange juice, and Elizabeth Odum tried to give the fattest one some butter, but she was intercepted by Dr. Christine Wilson who insisted that a baby just couldn't take it.

The wolf saw other interesting things - Irene Sandling teaching Russian, Hattie Lee Humphrey leaving for a peace conference, Iva Johnson selling soap, and Hally Cooke making silhouettes. He saw Ola Morris and Louine Musselwhite rolling baby carriages and Edna McCall spanking a little boy. He saw Lueile Noell playing football and Betsey Odum demonstrating egg beaters. Loula May Barker and Hazel Woodard were giving lessons in the Art of Being Nonchalant, and Pearl Mooring was proving her ability as a psycopathist.

In one corner the wolf saw a lunch room, and he began to feel hungry again. Myrtie Gray Hodges was making turtle soup while Sallie Brooks and Virginia Cale made popovers. Elizabeth Dail peeled onions, and Ola Williams tenderly wiped away her tears. When Lois Parrish and Elizabeth Denny came out nibbling frog legs, the wolf began to violently huff and puff. There is no telling what might have happened, but he suddenly received a stinging blow from a bean shooter. Dazed and breathless, he looked up and saw Lorna Langley. Across her forehead was an inscription, "I keep the wolf from the door!" She took careful aim with her bean shooter. . . .

It was lonely in the forest. But, at least, there were no pigs !

Motto: "Not to the top but climbing"


I think that there was n'er alive,

A class as good as '35

A class whose aims and ideals high,

Meant "do your very best or die."

A class, who in a losing game,

Could boast the winning class to fame.

Our class is made of fools like me,

But its fame shall love eternally.

Our Class in approximation

Is two hundred forty strong;

And as to zeal and animation -

We'll rule the place before long!

But thinking in a serious way

We gladly will cooperate;

And at some not so far off day

We will make, this our college great.

Now let us go forward and perserve

Until our work is done;

For we want our memory here

To be a grand and brilliant one

WE, the Senior Normal Class of 1934. as we near the end of our pleasant days of friendship and training at East Carolina Teachers College, do hereby make our Last Will and Testament, leaving the various accumulations which through diligence we have been able to acquire :

To President Wright, to Miss Morton, and to our Faculty, we leave our deep and sincere thanks for their untiring efforts and undivided interest in providing the necessary equipment and in attempting to aid us so that we might reach our enviable positions.

To our Parents and Friends, who have sponsored our career at East Carolina Teachers College, we dedicate our records, and trust our love may ever hold a place in their hearts as we strive to repay them for what they have done for us.

To our Alma Mater, we leave our love and devotion and our services toward the development on her campus of high ideals and noble standards.

To the Junior Normal Class, we leave:

First, our cherished dignity. We hope that from this will arise that same serious-minded attitude which helped us to be responsible in our work.

Second, the pleasure of practice teaching, accompanied by the many criticisms which make life worth living.

Third, our ambition. May they use this in finding success and happiness through life.

Fourth, a magnifying glass with which to find our privileges.

Margaret Daughtridge, Testatrix.

Although the boys won only one game during the season it would be considered a successful one. In the games against Appalachian and State College Frosh, the boys played unusually well. This year for the first time. "The Teachers" were pitted against the varsity of a four year college.

It is prophesied that the "Teachers" will next year use the well known ruler on some of the "Little Six" as only two of the present team will be lost.

Oh, Emerson Society,

Dear old White and Blue!

For you our hearts beat merrily

As we sing this song to you.

For when we see our colors there,

Blue and White, everywhere,

We know that they mean only you.

And all you hold so true.

So here we are the Emersons,

Boosting for our clan.

Oh, Emerson! Oh, Emerson!

For you we will always stand!

Beneath the red and white,

For we will conquer all our foes,

And we're sure to win in every fight.

Let us ever our motto uphold,

Always faithful, true, and loyal to thee, night and day,

Hurrah for the Green and Gold!
